Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
Understand that Fifth but if we are to believe what has been written then he was given assurances by OGS that he would get game time at his boyhood club who he has supported his whole life and been at since a child. Couple that with the fact that they are arguably the largest club in the world and he had the chance to play with CR7 who was his idol you can understand why he would stay at ManU. Its easy to look at it from the point of view of the 'everyday man' that we would play rather than hold out for the money as the idea of having £5/10/15 or even 20m is pretty unimaginable so its just a pipe dream. If you are living that life with the costs associated and the standard of living that you want to maintain then these decisions become much more delicate and in-depth.

We're not talking about the difference of £12m to £15m, looking at the numbers rumoured previously of £200k per week you are talking about £31.2m over a 3 year contract with a signing on fee of say £5m you have over £36m in his pocket versus no signing on fee and wages of say £100k with ManU picking up a £10m fee now. As you can see this would make a difference of £20m to him personally, that is a shit load of money on top of what he has already earned.

I honestly think this now has disaster written all over it if he comes now. Its just not how its done. it's just not right the way its all dragged out.

I'd rather we look elsewhere.

Spurs enter the race?

How did Joe Cole's return to West Ham work out?

Will be the same, probably (it's not my money), with Lingard. He had his purple patch but couldn't maintain it.

The net needs to be cast in another lake.

Jim

I honestly don't think I would run down my contract. I would have asked to leave to join West Ham at the end of last season. If he'd done what he did with us at Leicester or Villa or wherever I'd have said the same. I might end up with £12 million instead of £15 million in my bank account when I retire but then I've fucked my career. I feel sorry for him as he's got his priorities wrong IMHO.

Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
I'd love to get him back as he was exceptional for us and seemed like he was well liked in the dressing room but lets be honest the only reason he would leave ManU now is if he believed he would have a chance to go to the World Cup. If he has looked at it realistically and thought with all the other options England have with the likes of Madison at Leceister coming good again that he doesn't have a shout then it makes perfect sense the run his contract down. He's approaching 30 with the chance to get one last big payday with a sizeable signing on fee and high wages that could make a £5-10m difference to him personally if not more. When you consider how short a players career is then he's doing the best thing for him and why shouldn't he, its what we would all do. He'll still have a choice of at least 4 or 5 clubs who will take him.

Move on ffs

Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
I don't really believe he wants to wait until the end of the season. More likely the story has been planted in the media to put pressure on Man Utd to sell or loan him out.

goose 4:22 Tue Jan 11
Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
I dont get his motivation at all.

He came here on loan and arguably played the best football of his career and made the england squad because of that.

Now he goes back there and seems content to not play again putting him right back where he started. If he barely plays between now and the end of the season is there really gonna be a long queue of clubs wanting to throw huge wages at him?

I just dont get it.

Ali yard? Lingard obvs

DukeofDevo 4:16 Tue Jan 11
Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
If Ali yard runs his contract down there’s no chance of him going to the World Cup, which I assume he still has ambitions for! Get him for £10m and he will be a good boost towards our cup and European ambitions plus a CB and striker of course!

Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
I dont blame Lingard in this, it seems like he acting in his own best interests.

But we should realise that and move on. Or give him a take-it or leave-it offer which is not astronomical (assuming Man Utd would entertain a transfer).

He is not worth 200kpw even on a free. I wouldn't want to be paying him upwards of 100kpw if it's a 3+ year deal either.

There are better value players out there and lets hope Rob Newman can find a few for us.

Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
A bit like everything we do, it seems to be dragging on too long for it to work. I like him as a player and he seems to fit in with the dressing room despite his previous antics at the Manchester club. Either join us in the next 7 days or trot of to moneybags Newcastle and fight your way out of relegation.

PastyTime 3:06 Tue Jan 11
Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
No from me. If he really wanted to join he’d be here by now. Move on.

Has Lingard played for MU in Europe this season? if so would he be cup tied from our Europa game(s)?

Did anybody actually think Declan was going to leave in this window? Not a chance. That was a pointless exercise but what do you expect from that radio station.

Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
It's pretty obvious he wants to run down his contract. If he wanted to go he'd have gone already. Players have a lot of power. He's making it sound like his hands are tied.

I almost think he's just been playing both Man U and West Ham along really. And now cup tied as well... that really adds to your value!

Lets move on.

And to be honest, the way his form dropped towards the end of the season, not sure I care really. (just annoyed he scored that goal against us early on... )

Lee Trundle 1:19 Tue Jan 11
Re: Jesse Lingard - Yes or no?
" that Lingard is staying at Man U until end of season and will want £200k a week as a free agent"

I've been saying from the start he'd be mad not to run his contract down and get a nice juicy signing on fee and likely bigger wages.

But then you had grassLOLopper on the rumours thread insisting that Man Utd won't let him leave on a free (like that have a choice).
